This Misunderstood Antioxidant Helps Boost Memory

October 29th, 2014
Don’t let the mainstream fool you—this antioxidant comes with serious health benefits. New research reveals it can boost your memory and protect your brain.

Health Watch readers know that resveratrol is a controversial antioxidant. We’ve told you before about the heart-healthy benefits of it…though some “experts” are quick to dismiss them. But the numbers tell a different story.
